The Stars of Israel
What have you done in the past 2 weeks ? Had fun with your friends ?
Been to the movies ? Ate dinner with the kids ? Played a round of golf ?
In the past 2 weeks, Israeli soldiers have killed 4 foreign nationals. 2
have been journalists, and 2 have been peace activists. The killings
were condemned worldwide and governments of the respective nations
which have lost their citizens, have asked Israel for a full enquiry.
World Wide Views told you about Rachel Corrie, who was crushed to
death by a bulldozer, about to demolish a Palestinian home. We
showed you the images which showed frame by frame, Rachel standing
in front of the bulldozer, in full view of the driver. (see our pictures
and report on rachel) We told you how she was in conversation with the driver, begging him not to destroy the home. We showed you the images of her limp, broken body, after the bulldozer ran her over (link). In the enquiry, none of Rachel's friends, or none of the eyewitnesses to the incident were allowed to give evidence. Video and photos of the incident were not allowed. When her friends went o mourn her death, they were driven away by shooting from Israeli tanks, who ran over a small memorial for her.
Israel has said she was killed by a falling piece of concrete. It fell from the sky. A miracle, that no-one else witnessed. The US government has accepted this.
We showed you footage of James Miller, who was filming the demolition of occupied Palestinian homes. You were told how he was sat there for 4 hours, in full view of the Israelis, filming with his crew. We showed how he walked out of a well lit veranda with a white flag. Wearing his journalists clothing. (see our original report) You saw how there was no gunfire, and no-one else around at the time. We told you how he was shot through the neck by the Israeli's (link). In the enquiry that followed, none of his crew were allowed to give statements. The video of his murder was never accepted or seen. Miller (along with Channel 4 reporter Saira Shah) was best known for Beneath the Veil, a Channel 4 documentary about women living under Taliban rule in Afghanistan, which won a prestigious Royal Television Society award last year.
Israeli forces have said he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was in the midst of a gunfight, and was mistaken for a terrorist. The US government have accepted this.
Tom Hurndall was a British university student in Palestine, learning the art of war photography. While in Gaza, he witnessed Israeli's shooting at children aged between 6-8. He tried to help them escape, but was shot through the head by an Israeli sniper. He was wearing a bright orange jacket, identifying him as a foreign peace activist. He was shot at several times, all shots aimed at the head ( link ). In the enquiry on his shooting, which has left him brain dead, no eye witnesses were allowed to give evidence, photos and video of the incident were not allowed. When his parents were to the scene where he was shot, they too came under fire ( link ).
The Israeli forces have said their sniper saw a man shooting at them. He was a terrorist. They therefore shot him once in the head.
I could go on and on explaining how many people died. These I have mentioned are lucky. Their deaths have had worldwide attention. Israel has had to explain its actions. What Israel doesn't have to explain is its murder of 100's of Palestinians everyday.
Israel does not need to justify its bulldozing of Palestinian homes. It is now also stamping numbers on Palestinians, exactly how the nazi's number stamped Jews
( link ). every act the Israeli's commit can be compared almost identically to an act by the Nazi's. Some have even suggested that Sharon and the Israeli's use Hitler and his methods of ethnic cleansing as an inspiration to terrorize the Palestinians. They know how successful Hitler was, so they are now almost emulating his tactics, to achieve similar goals.
Sharon has now nearly completed a wall of apartheid, to imprison the Palestinians. Since the nazi times, there has never been such a blatant policy of ethnic cleansing. Its not as if the world is ignorant ( link ). Everyday we have one or more views and articles about this issue. But the world does nothing.
Now I beg you to act. Do something. And if you're wondering what you can possibly do, without risking a bullet to the head, then I ask you to boycott ANY brand or product that supports Israel.
This definitive list ( link ) shows the brands that support the daily murder and apartheid in Israel. These companies support the shooting of children, the use of rocket bombs in residential areas, the imprisonment of the Palestinians, the murder of peace activists, the ritual torture of Palestinian men. The horrors go on forever. There is a reason why Ariel Sharon is the most wanted man, by the Hague War Crimes Tribunal. I urge you NOT to label all Jews as supporters of Israel. Many of the peace activists there are Jews, as it is next to impossible for other people to enter Israel. This is not a Jew, Muslim issue. This is about Israel, and supporters of Israel
Please download this list, distribute this list, pass this list. But NEVER use these products.
Next time you do, remember that you are sponsoring this state terrorism. You are helping fund this ethnic cleansing. You are assisting in the murder of innocent children. Just remember that.
'If you're interested in terror, you should look at its causes.... [But] you're not allowed to look at the causes because that's considered rationalization or justification.... And there's a good reason for that. As soon as you look at the causes, you start looking in the mirror.'
